– “First principles, Clarice. Simplicity.

Read Marcus Aurelius. Of each particular thing, ask what is it in itself? What is its nature?

What does he do, this man you seek?”

– “He kills women”.

– “No. That is incidental.

What is the first thing he does? What needs does he serve by killing?”

– “Anger.

Social acceptance.

Sexual frustrations”.

– “No. He covets.

That is his nature. And how do we begin to covet, Clarice?

Do we seek out things to covet?

No, we begin by coveting what we see every day.”

Very important.

__ one of my favorites. definitely in my top 10.

"I'm having an old friend for dinner".

Wow! You nailed it. So much GREAT dialogue. @rcch 8:30a JST. 

And, Anthony Hopkins’ performance: casually strolling away as Clarice repeats his name over the phone:

Dr. Lecter...? Dr. Lecter...? Dr. Lecter...?.

Speaking of Netflix... Sorry, the original ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Jonathan Demme Director/Jody Foster Clarice version is not ‘ON Netflix’. In Japan, *‘U *may have to go the* -NEXT**’ *streaming service to find it.

However, in Japan, you will find the Anthony Hopkins’ Dr Lecter *prequel, ‘Red Dragon’ and His sequel, ‘Hannibal’, *‘ON Netflix’.

(“Gotta Love that Netflix!”). STAY HOME everyone!

A great film. Using The Fall's classic song Hip Priest as the background music for the climax was a stroke of genius. RIP Jonathan Demme.

Watched that at the Swiss Cottage Odeon. The walk home was dark and scary.

For dinner the guests should be served liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

I reckon that the only entries in the "franchise" that equal Silence of the Lambs would be Manhunter (1986) and the short-lived telly series with Mads Mikkelsen.

Both very different takes on Lecter, but both as grimly fascinating.

Dark Tourism like this has become very popular. People want to see both, the real and movie locations. Thanks. @zichi 3:41p JST . *(Now, we’re creeped out by your ‘Salvatore Mundi’.) According to ‘Silence of the Lambs’ scholar, ‘Louis Friend’, Dr. Lecter, was an admirer of DaVinci and lectured on the Italian Renaissance in Florence, where the painting may have originated. (You can see it and ‘Hannibal’ ‘ON Netflix’).

one of the three films in history to win “the five”; (Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Adapted Screenplay). the only “horror” to win Best Picture.

my favorite moment: when Lecter’s finger touches Clarice’s hand. we learn that there was still “some” humanity left in this “monster”.


thank you for the information on where to find this :) but my recommendation: go to the nearest bookoff and buy the blu-ray (reasonable price). this one deserves to be on the shelf at home.
